People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones...Schroeder

Outgoing German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has aimed a broadside at US President George W. Bush, saying Hurricane Katrina showed what happened when a state neglected its duty.

Schroeder made his comments in a speech to a trade union in Hanover on Wednesday in which he warned of the dangers of eroding the welfare functions of the state.

"I can think of a recent disaster that shows what happens when a country neglects its duties of state towards its people," said Schroeder, who will soon cede his post to conservative rival Angela Merkel.

"My post as chancellor, which I still hold, does not allow me to name that country but you all know that I am talking about America," Schroeder said to laughter and applause.

Obviously, while Schroeder was so busy fine-tuning his socialists values, he never bothered to learn anything about the United States and their government. If he had, he would have learned that our States have their own governor and mayor(s) who are responsible for their citizens, especially in the case of natural disasters.

Perhaps it would have been better if Schroeder not only minded his own business, but stayed out of the United States' business. If he had, perhaps he wouldn't now be one of the four million people in Germany that has lost his job.

I'm so glad Schroeder is toast... Now, get rid of Chirac and I might even forgive the frogs...

Oh, I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't somewhere in the near future.
